We previously mentioned our thoughts on Passpack and OpenID. The feedback was almost unanimous. You as users all seemed to be opposed to the idea of having a Passpack whitelitst for OpenID providers.
Just for clarity’s sake, the idea only came into our heads because we were trying to keep consistent with level of security we like to offer Passpack users.
So What Is Our Take On the Issue Now?
We have decided that the OpenID providers that work well with Passpack will be presented on the Passpack Sign In Page.
*An important note – we have verified that logging in with a delegated name from one of these providers should be no problem.
But We Don’t Want To Limit You
As we have always stressed – your Pack is yours. Login with whichever OpenID you prefer but there are 2 things I would like to point out:
1. If you try to login to Passpack with any OpenID provider that has been submitted to PhishTank as a suspected phishing site, Passpack will warn you.
2. Even if you don’t see an icon for your preferred OpenID provider, you can still use it at your discretion by clicking the appropriate icon.
Let us know what you think!
